Q section now on 5th floor

After a temporary detour into storage, the books in the Q call number section are all in their new home on the 5th floor.

Thanks to our library users for your patience during the shift, and thanks to the great student assistants and staff in our Circulation Department who provided all the muscle to move the books!

It’s Here! Onesearch is Live!

The John M. Pfau Library’s Onesearch system went live as of 8 a.m. this morning.  Please take a look!  As with any huge system changeover, even with the most diligent work and attention to detail behind the scenes, there will be “bumps” along the new path.  Should you encounter any, please let Stacy Magedanz know about them so we can get them fixed (screenshots are a plus!).

We thank you for your patience!

TWO Summer Construction Projects

TWO CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS THIS SUMMER (in alphabetical order)

DECK REPLACEMENT – 1st Floor

Beginning the week of June 26th, this project will eliminate leaks in our basement.  The entire, external deck will be replaced, however, only one-fourth of it will be under construction at a time to allow access to the library.

SPECIAL COLLECTIONS REMODEL – 4th Floor

The Special Collections department area will be remodeled.  Plans call for extending into an area previously occupied by book shelving.  The remodel will provide an improved facility with a reading room and more space for cumbersome equipment as well as office space for the Center for Faculty Excellence.

PLEASE NOTE that, although the books displaced by this project (Q call numbers; science) have been moved into storage, all of them are still available for use.  Simply give the call number and title of the desired book to library staff at the Check-Out Desk on the 1st floor and they will retrieve it for you. 

Q BOOKS WILL ONLY BE IN STORAGE TEMPORARILY UNTIL WE’VE HAD ENOUGH TIME TO INTEGRATE THE ADDITIONAL SHELVING INTO THE 5TH FLOOR, SHIFT SOME OF THE BOOKS ALREADY THERE, AND RESHELVE THE QS.  (SEVERAL BOOK TRUCKS HAVE ALREADY LOST THEIR LIVES DURING THIS HUGE PROJECT!)

STARBUCKS – 1st Floor

Updated with new information on 6-20-17: The start of this project is currently delayed until mid-to-late October 2017.


The various contractors have promised us a minimum level of noise and disruption.  All of these projects are slated to be completed by Fall Quarter.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move through one of our most challenging summers yet!
